The Northern Netherlands is the first region to receive a subsidy for their so-called Hydrogen Valley. The North Netherlands’ subsidy application for a Hydrogen Valley has been approved by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) of the European Commission. It concerns a subsidy of 20 million euros with a public-private cofinancing of 70 million euros. This brings the total project size to around 90 million euros. 

This subsidy is intended for the development of a fully functioning green hydrogen chain in the Northern Netherlands. The six-year project – called HEAVENN – will start in January 2020 at the latest. More on NLL Hydrogen Valley read here.
